Aurifil Block of the Month and Magazine Features
Hi There! I'm excited to share some fun features with you today! I am so pleased to be a part of the Aurifil Designer Block of the Month this year! I'm among some really talented ladies, it's a true honor! Each month, one of us is sharing a pieced quilt block featuring Pat Bravo's Rock n' Romance collection. Stitch up a block and share it in the flickr group for a chance to win a special Aurifil thread prize each month! The lovely Pat Sloan interviews the designer each month and posts the block instructions.
March is my month! You can find my interview, block, and block instructions here!
Color Me Retro, just for fun! I've been sewing random test blocks here and there, I think I'll eventually have enough for a big sampler quilt!
Generation Q, Spring 2013! Look at that sweet baby on the cover! You'll find a photo of my Hexagon Ring Pincushion (tutorial), in the trendology article on hexagons!
Art Gallery Fabrics and all the new designers. I was so totally tickled to see Color Me Retro decorating the article! There are so many great projects in this issue too!
You can find this issue on newsstands now. For a list of online shops that carry the magazine see here.
Love Quilting & Patchwork! It's put out by the same publisher that bring us Mollie Makes. It's everything you'd expect if Mollie Makes was all about quilting. There are loads of sweet projects and the magazine is fresh and colorful. I am so happy to be included in it, and I really hope it does well! I want more issues! :)
Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month Quilt and a how-to on half-square triangles!
Katy Jones also kindly mentioned my Giant Vintage Star Quilt in her fun Love a Bit More article! Thanks Katy, you're the best!
You can find this magazine on newsstands in the UK, and it will be popping up at Barnes & Noble and Jo-Ann Stores by mid-March in the US!
